The prose, poetry, and art of SAND 23 are all about coping – from escapism to rituals, dreams, obsessions and prayers. A poet pines for woolly mammoths, obsolete technology and profiteroles. A girl gang drink graveside Jell-o shots. For one grieving narrator, a pet cat proves more of a menace than a comfort. And on the cover, a brilliant bouquet sprouts from unlikely roots.

Completing our year of archaeology, SAND 22 feels its way through the junk, keepsakes, and spaces we leave behind. Making sense of the past means both taking it apart and putting it back together. [expand title="more"]In the prose, poetry, and art of SAND 22, our pasts and presents prove surprisingly malleable. Clutter dug out of a childhood home is recast into invaluable relics. A photograph’s absence becomes more poignant than its subject. Meanwhile, a scientist and his octopoid muse compose a counterpoint of sensory observations, and, on the outskirts of Berlin, an island brazenly invents its history with an ostentation of peacocks and uncomfortable desires.[/expand]

Sand #20 is full of taboos and transgressions, secrets and profanities, all of which would likely be censored in many times and places. Mothers walk around both inspiringly and obscenely naked, a 16th-century fire consumes gay men and furniture as equally disposable,[expand title="more"]pro-democracy poets embrace profanity as resistance, shameful body parts become the center of eroticism, lovers battle polar bears alongside the confines of monogamy, and mothers hide their real monsters in the euphemism of bedtime stories, all while the young women in Sookoon Ang’s cover art refuse to be the types of bodies that are put on magazine covers.[/expand]

Issue 18 has a new expanded format. The 144 pages of writing and art embark on a search for ancestral meaning that takes us from a remote Philippine island to a cavern on the Caribbean coast, with stops in rural China, Sudan, Brazil, and California. The cover artist, Elina Bergmark Wiberg, sculpts elastic objects that engage with agrarian traditions and modern materials: “Still Life with Grapes” combines silicone with lentils.

The January issue Cool and Noteworthy is an annual review of photographic highlights – the people and projects they enjoyed most this year, but for one reason or another didn’t make one of their 2018 editions. [expand title="more"] Among this year’s noteworthies is 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell, the first African American to shoot the cover for American Vogue. We cover Kensuke Koike’s much-anticipated new book, a collaboration with Thomas Sauvin of Beijing Silvermine. Other highlights include Pixy Liao’s Experimental Relationship, an exploration of gender roles, and Feng Li’s intriguing fashion editorial for System magazine. It’s not all bright young things. They also recognise two noteworthy exhibitions at Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto: Collaboration: A Potential History of Photography and The Flávio Story, which explores the impact and repercussions of a Gordon Parks photo essay, featured in Life in 1961. They cover Steidl’s scholarly anthology devoted to August Sander’s lifework, People of the 20th Century. And Pete Brook reports on a dynamic exhibition about the San Quentin State Prison, and that's not even everything in this issue. [/expand]

Migrant Journal #3 In 2016, more people flew in planes than ever recorded in history. Technology has also enabled new developments to take place through the air, from drones to satellite communication. Throughout millennia, water particles, seeds and birds have been avid migrants, essential for our global ecosystem. [expand title="more"]Meanwhile seas and oceans have become a morbid stage to which nobody pays attention, where thousands die as they hope of a better future. 5,098 individuals lost their lives in their attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea in 2016. The sea is also home to nomadic populations of humans and animals; a millennial stage for exploration, a source of food and life—and a contested space. While the seamless ocean and the boundless skies deceive us as infinite spaces, they are submitted to international laws, social and political dynamics, along with the intrinsic laws of nature.[/expand]
